Welcome

Welcome to the website of St Peter’s Cathedral, Adelaide.

Palm Sunday 13 April 2014

Welcome:   This last week we have remembered one of the most shameful episodes in modern history: the Rwandan Genocide. Twenty years ago Hutu turned on Tutsi and, in a period of about 100 days, left up to 800,000 people dead. Light a candle to honour those dead, the countless children born of rape, and as a small symbol of thanks for the reconciliation and rebuilding that continues.

Palm Sunday marks the beginning of Holy Week and the final journey with Jesus to his betrayal, arrest and death. St Peter’s Cathedral offers many services and recitals to help people make the pilgrimage. I hope you will be able to keep this most holy of times and join us next Sunday (don’t miss the Easter Day dawn service, it’s stunning) to celebrate the Resurrection.

Cathedral Council members will be commissioned today; probationer trebles will receive their surplices (making them full members of the Cathedral Choir) and, on Tuesday, the new Cathedral Chapter will be commissioned during the Chrism Eucharist. All members of the Diocese of Adelaide are invited to attend the Chrism Eucharist on Tuesday at 11.30am. Pray for the ordained clergy and licensed lay ministers who serve God’s people.

Welcome to all who worship today. Hosanna to the Son of David. Blessed is he who comes in the name of the Lord.

Frank Nelson
Dean
